Wattpad Announces New Writing Contest

For the Wattpad Announces New Writing Contest Social Media Social reading past 4 years Wattpad has been running an annual writing contest called The Wattys, and after the latest one proved quite popular this online community decided to take things in a new direction.

Wattpad has just announced a new writing contest called The Wattpad Prize. Rather than judge submissions simply as a popularity contest, Wattpad plans to select a jury of Wattpad members to help the judges identify original works of fiction and nonfiction.Yes, only original works will be accepted, meaning that the fanfic and popfic which might have been submitted to The Wattys are not eligible for this contest.

Few details are available at this time, but I do know that the jury will be made up of experienced readers and writers who are active in the Wattpad community, and that the winning stories will be chosen by theme and not by category or genre.

Wattpad plans to release more details on 2 April.
